Hello, I would like to know if it is possible to scan multiple pages into one file, please, so page 1 0f 4, page 2 of 4, etc.

one option (the only one I know of) is using the 'Save as PDF button'
Tooltip says to select multiple scans/screenshots to create multipage PDF.

Haven't used it in a very long time, but sounds like what you want?
I dont think pages are numbered though.

Thank you Tomos for replying, I tried as you explained it to me, but it does not work, I sent two sample sheets.

hi James,
I'm not clear from those screenshots: can you please describe exactly where/when it didnt work.
I see PDFs there in the thumbnail panel - I think SC cannot review these - you'll need to open them via the right-click menu (oddly, a double-click doesnt work to open them here).

Just in case (I was a bit brief earlier) -- the workflow is to create the individual scans first, then select all the images needed in thumbnail panel, then convert to PDF using the PDF button.
Tom

Just drag and drop the images onto each other in Screenshot Captor. That will allow you to combine the images into a single image.

I think what james is wanting is to be able to like quickly scan 5 pages and generate a 5-page pdf, with one page for each scan.

You can do this with SC with a little bit of effort -- scanning each image separately, then selecting them all and choosing File -> Combine Multiple Images -> PDF.

BUT, if this is something you do a lot, you should probably use a "proper" tool for scanning, that has more features designed for creating multi-page scans and documents.

While SC is designed to take care of 90% of your daily scanning and object annotation needs, if you are doing more complicated things it may call for more dedicated special purpose tools.

Thanks, the multiple files must be saved as a PDF?
Or *.jpg files may - can also be applied in one file?

If you want as OUTPUT a multi-page document then you need to select input image files and create a PDF (or an animated GIF).

And the INPUT files need to be images (like png or jpg, not PDF files, as SC does not *currently* know how to read pdf image files).

BUT if what you want is not a multi-page document output, but rather all the images combined one above another into one large image, that's completely different.  For that you can drag+drop to combine them as Deozaan said above.

Yes, when I make a scan in "Control Center 4" I can make more page's they will be combined.
I thought to do it in Screenshot Captor, with the nice handy features inside.

Thanks for all your answers. The above quoted answer fitted my question perfectly.
Thanks again.
